Dear 8th Grade Families,
Today, Thursday, June 9th, 2016, your child (or children), has participated in the Culmination for the Portola HGM Class of 2016! Congratulations to all our graduates, and good luck in High School! We had several different awards presented to many different students today, such as our American Math Competition (AMC) 8 and 10, our LA Science Fair Awards, Presidential Awards, Valedictorian Awards, and our Outstanding Graduate Awards. We also had 2 special guests joining us today, LAUSD Superintendent, Michelle King, as well as LAUSD Board President and Local District 4 Superintendent, Steve Zimmer! Ms. King presented a special Outstanding Character Award to our Student Council Historian, Niko Gevorgian for inviting her, as well as for being a good leader! We also had some student speeches, some music pieces, and other special activities. Please see the attached program card for more details. Once again, on behalf of Portola Middle School and Highly Gifted Magnet, we would like to congratulate all the star students who culminated today, all the talented students who performed and spoke today, and wish all the students the best of luck in their High School Experience!
Parents, information about the photos taken today by our professional photographers as well as a video of the entire event will be emailed to you soon.
